THE SUN shone all over Mytholmroyd for an open garden event.

Eight homeowners in the town opened the gates to their greenery to raise money for St Michael’s Parish Church at Mytholmroyd.

Organised by Jackie Robinson, Eric Alston and his wife Lesley, it raised more than £1,000.

There were around 200 visitors who took advantage of the delectable cakes , beautiful blooms, neat lawns and warm weather on the day. With stalls and plants on sale in some of the gardens they also picked up craft items during the day.

Mayor of Hebden Royd Scott Trickett also attended the event, which was running for the first year.
